Dryad Press and David Krut Projects Cape invite you to join them at the launch of An Unobtrusive Vice, the debut collection of Tony Ullyatt.
“Tony Ulyatt is that rare thing: a poet’s poet, but at the same time utterly accessible. His poems are deliciously dense, his images rich and sharp and his tone ironical, lightly seasoned with humour. Poetry itself is his unobtrusive vice.” – Johann de Lange
Tony will be in conversation with renowned poet and literary critic Joan Hambidge. Please ensure you reserve your place as seating is limited. Details are as follows:
Venue: David Krut Projects, Montebello Design Centre, 21 Newlands Avenue, Newlands
Date: Tuesday, 20 February 2018
Time: 17.30 for 18.00

“Tony Ullyatt’s collection evidences a strong poetic art displaying a variety of techniques. The collection contains engaging ekphrastic verse and investigates the impact of a personal history in gripping family portraits. There is discourse with other poets and cynical, distanced love poems; all neatly wrapped up in a masterful play with words.” – Joan Hambidge
